“The PULSAR 4 is the best way to keep valuable petrochemical assets performing and prevent unwarranted downtime”
Oil & Gas operations are heavily dependent on combustion based processes to supply the world’s growing energy needs. The PULSAR 4 is intended for monitoring the Refractory and Gas temperatures inside Sulfur Recovery Units, Sulfur Burners, and Thermal Oxidizer Furnaces frequently found at petrochemical facilities.

“Any one of these vessels can force a shut down that will cost $1M or more per day”, says LumaSense CEO, Steve Abely. “Unplanned downtime eats into planned profits, whereas increasing uptime increases profit. The PULSAR 4 is a condition based maintenance system to protect refinery profits”, continues Abely.

The PULSAR 4 is an explosion proof infrared thermometer (pyrometer) with the ability to see through flames and simultaneously deliver the Refractory Temperature and Gas Temperature with precision to 0.3 °C and a range of 350° to 2000° C. The PULSAR 4 Advanced features LumaSense’s proprietary Smart Flame Measurement Algorithm (Smart FMA™) which accounts for flame transparency that can affect the temperature readings for a more precise view of activity inside these vessels. LumaSense’s updated and powerful InfraWin software interprets the data from the PULSAR 4 for analysis inside the control room.

“Our Smart FMA™ technology, serviceability, and long standing relationships with major producers is what separates the PULSAR 4 from the rest”, says  E2T product manager David Ducharme.

Customers with existing PULSAR II and III systems can leverage their existing infrastructure to upgrade these units to the new PULSAR 4 and its advanced capabilities.

Pulsar 4 Data Sheet
ThermalSpection™ CVM system

The ThermalSpection™ Critical Vessel Monitoring system  is a turn-key solution for monitoring critical vessels, such as gasifier skin temperature.

Critical vessels in the chemicals, refining and power industries operate at high temperature and pressure and are at risk of failure as joints and refractory degrade. The consequences of undetected failures can be very serious. The ThermalSpection CVM system uses non-contact thermal imaging to provide real-time, continuous, automated fault detection and monitoring for your most critical assets.

Features include
Early fault detection to reduce risk, emergencies and unplanned outages
Continuous, automated monitoring
Easy integration into existing plant DCS and data historian
Designed for hazardous area installations (ATEX, Class I Div 2)
Auto “Hot Spot” Tracking Feature
HTML visualization displays for broadcast on plant intranet
Data Historian archive
OPC/Modbus interface
Optional integration with OSIsoft’s PI database system
